LookUp School Year

The LookUp School Year program is open to students who will be high school juniors during the program year and is offered at no charge to students thanks to the generous support of local corporations, family foundations and individuals. Sessions take place in and around downtown Cleveland and its neighborhoods.


Admission is through a selective application process for students who demonstrate leadership ability, participate in school/community organizations and clubs, exhibit academic soundness, and show self-reliance, independence and initiative. Students must be enrolled in a high school or be home-schooled in Cuyahoga County. In addition to completing the online application, students must supply two non-family references, commit to the attendance policies and gain school and parental approval. Applications are open from April 15 through May 31.
